Exploring Bogotá's Urban Wetlands: Humedal de Córdoba, Sector 2
Updated: Jun 23, 2020
After a successful Internations event to Sector 3 in January, everyone kept asking when we would be going back to visit the newly renovated Sector 2. So in May, that's just what we did...
If you love birds, Sector 2 is probably your best option! Although significantly smaller than Sector 3, the trail offers numerous viewpoints that allow you to get much closer to the water's edge. During our recent visit, one of the first viewpoints awarded us with sitings of a hummingbird, oriole, flower piercer, ruddy duck and 4 paraqueets. Continuing further, we saw dozens of yellow tinguas (American Coot), red tinguas (Common Gallinule) and even a female blue tingua (Purple Gallinule) emerged from the reeds to grace us with her presence.
Sector 2 has recently been renovated to include a wheelchair-friendly boardwalk with observation decks, and is currently open to the public (no prior arrangement necessary). If you would like to organize a guide for your visit, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the Córdoba Wetland, you can visit their website.
